In general, showers use less energy and water than a bath. See the link below for more details. However, if you take longer than the average 4-5 minute shower, then you might save more water and energy with a bath.

Hi guidrymom,

I agree with cgomes that a shower typically uses less water than a bath. However, there are lots of variables to both a shower and a bath: duration of the shower, the volume of water coming out of your shower head (for instance, a low flow shower head vs. a normal shower head), and for a bath: volume of the tub, how much water is "wasted" and not collected because it is too cold, etc.

To determine whether or not a shower/bath for you and your family uses less water, you'd have to do some measuring/estimating.

Well, it depends on how much time you spend showering. Some people can shower for half of an hour and they surely waste more water that any bath. It's not that hard to be efficient with water supplies even you enjoy taking a bath. You should also try to save energy, especially during the Christmas season. Here is a nice post that will help you save more supplies:

According to my experience, a shower uses more water than a bath. The reason is, because I can control the water by myself when taking a bath then when taking a shower.
